This weekend, a local nursery held its annual quilt show in the garden. I don't usually go because it's about an hour away but this year, since we didn't have the kids, we decided to take the drive. What a treat. This is one of the nicest places to buy plants I've ever seen. The majority of the quilts were by Eleanor Burns, who was the featured quilter and displayed probably close to 100 quilts! Alex Anderson lives nearby so she was prominently featured as well, including a booth and her demonstrations.
This was what we saw as we entered the nursery grounds.
I loved the wool applique so had to take a closer picture. Up close I noticed that the quilter did not do buttonhole stitches. She did a different kind of stitch, which looked equally nice. I couldn't get a closer shot to show you as the quilt was too high up.
Look at the size of this tree!! This was just one of many. By the way, the pig quilt on the right had the most adorable pig fabric on the back, too!
This was one of my favorites of them all!
I really liked this log cabin variation. It's an Eleanor Burns quilt as are the ones above, I believe.
The sashing was printed not pieced. I am always looking for the right pattern for me to make a quilt using some of the Kaffe Fassett fabrics I've been collecting.
This one is a mini. I loved how she did the mini stars and the flag. Remember I tried to piece a flag recently and it was pretty sad. This one is adorable.
There was a really interesting exhibit by one woman who sewed people as if they were sitting on a bench.
Clever, don't you think?
This one was right by Alex Anderson and is called "Sizzle"-- it's the 2019 BOM by thequiltshow.com. It was designed by Becky Goldsmith. Thank you Dottie Daybell and Barbara Black for giving me the correct information about this quilt. I love the colors.
Hope you enjoyed the little show.
Tomorrow I'll show you my second quilt using the rest of the Triangle Gatherings blocks. Used them all up! WOOHOO. Just need to put on borders.
I realized something this weekend. I have so much fabric and so many quilts I want to make that the temptation is sometimes overwhelming. I want to make this one and that one; then there's another one I want to make. Where to begin?? Know what I mean??
